Openside shipping containers, also known as side-opening containers, are specialised shipping containers that have one or more full-length side doors, in addition to the standard end doors. Unlike standard shipping containers that can only be accessed from the front end, openside containers have doors that span the entire length of one of the sides, providing easy access to the contents inside.
The side-opening design makes openside containers highly versatile and suitable for storing large, or oversized items that may not easily fit through the standard end doors of regular shipping containers. Like standard shipping containers, openside containers are typically made of steel, making them sturdy, and weather-resistant while being on a self-storage site or a construction site.
Open-side containers come in 20ft and 40ft sizes, which are available for hire or purchase from Willbox. The 20’ x 8’ side opening container is the most popular version, however a 40’ version is available via direct order with our brokerage department. The 40’ open side container is primarily available as a high cube (9’ 6” external height), however modifications are possible with our experienced container conversions team.
